-- testily need -- desperately need for clean energy that will protect the planet. host: how does it work as a tax and how is it calculated? guest: day carbon tax is populated on the carbon content of the fossil fuel. coal is going to be taxed the most. natural gas the least an oil somewhere in the middle. renewables would not be taxed at all because they have no carbon in them. anything that is made with fossil fuels is one to become more expensive. that may seem like a negative, it is actually a positive. we need that pricing to bring away from transition t fossil fuel and away from 30 energy. it will make the economy more efficient and the tax -- to bring about the transition away from fossil fuel and away from dirty energy. the talk in washington in the past few weeks has been about a carbon tax of $20 per ton of carbon dioxide. that is hard to translate. it would be maybe half a cent a kilowatts in electricity and 18 cents a gallon more in the price of gasoline. that will bring about $100 million more a year in revenue. you could reform the tax code to make it more fair, more efficie

can burn off the inventory. clean energy fuels had them on last night. why focus on this? they have a clear growth path to build out stations. lloyd blankfein said in his editorial that key thing for growth in our country is energy. abundant energy. i thought we should look at clean energy that would benefit. markwest, this is a company that has a price above where they did secondary. look at the "wall street journal" word on the street. they say that maybe mlps have been oversold. if we're going to drill in this country for more energy, i like to think of halliburton down to 30. some people will say weatherford upgraded by a number of people and then let's not forget chesapeake. they came out this morning in a piece last night said we're more nat gas than i would like to be in ohio. when i spent time in ohio, 80% of what we put out on rigs is nat gas. you need the markwest pipeline to take natural gas to chesapeake to bring it to the east or to give it to clean energy fuels and in order to be able to drill oil, that's halliburton. that's the family of names that i'm focused on. >>

energy sector. the american wind energy industry is in jeopardy. the production tax credit will end december 31, 2012. it must be extended or else 30,000 jobs will be lost and 450 manufacturing businesses will close. two additional measures must also be considered. first, we could apply the master limited partnership and the real estate investment tax programs to the green energy sector and thereby bring significant financing opportunities along with the production tax credit. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from tennessee, mrs. black, for five minutes. mrs. black: thank you, mr. speaker. while the president returned from the campaign trail last week with a slightly more conciliatory tone, his insistence on a year end tax hike on small businesses is unchanged, and frankly that is completely unacceptable. it is unacceptable for more than 23 million americans struggling for work right now. it's unacceptable for millions of middle-class americans struggling to support their families with rising gas prices an

and take your, take your energy? that is -- information. that is example of unfairness. we brought 100 examples of spam cases many based on unfairness. 40 data security cases using unfairness. those are examples where i think you want us to use this statute. this is a statute that congress gave us in 1939 to prohibit unfair deceptive acts or practices. >> wyndham case is fair example. it didn't protect their credit card data. >> what we allege, yes. >> 500,000 credit card numbers ended up in the hands of a russian company. >> can neither confirm or deny that. that is certainly the allegation. i don't think even they deny it. >> i guess you brought that. >> involving multiple hacks. not first time or second time. perhaps as many as three. >> one thing i wonder about, one criticism of the ftc you didn't do anything to google for their overcollection of wi-fi information and i don't know how much you can say about that by that, part of the problem there was they didn't say they wouldn't do it. so it wasn't deceptive. they never said i'm not going to collect everybody's information over wi

, and clean energy, putting people back to work rebuilding roads, bridges and schools and reducing our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. on this last item, we face a very clear deadline. that requires us to make some big decisions on jobs, taxes, and deficits by the end of the year. both parties voted to set this deadline. and i believe that both parties can work together to make these decisions in a balanced and responsible way. to meet with labor and civic leaders for their input. today i meet with c.e.o.'s of some of america's largest companies. and i'll meet with leaders of both party of congress before the week is out because there's only one way to solve the channels and that is to do it together. as i've said before, i'm open to compromise and i'm hope to new ideas. and i've been encouraged over the last week to hear republican after republican agree on the need for more revenue from the wealthiest americans as part of our arithmetic if we're serious about reducing the deficit. because when it comes to taxes, there are two pathways available. option one, if congress fails to ac
to bring down other leaders pticularly in the gulf states and to use that energy, that rage, and channel it against israel. it is the kind of unpredictable situation that egypt will have a tough time dealing with right now. and it leaves the united states at a difficult position. you remember president obama said in that -- in that interview with telemundo that he wasn't sure if egypt was a steadfast ally anymore. right now when you have egyptian officials coming here and expressing solidarity with hamas, it's clear why the united states had those doubts. >> richard engel, thank you very much. >>> here is erica. >> lester, thanks. we are learning more today about september's deadly consulate attack. former cia director david petraeus, still reeling from revelations of his affair testified on capitol hill behind closed doors. kristen welker has more. >> reporter: general petraeus snuck in and out of the capitol on friday, but his testimony is still making waves with lawmakers. some say it only raises more questions about the way the administration handled the bengahzi attack. reporters we
what frequencies are we using the electronic magnetic spectrum? how much energy are we putting out there? our people measuring it? and do we know what we need to know about that? the answer was you know, we did a pretty good job at this during the cold war some of you may remember the mission control and that was a consistent effort that we had but not so much now because frankly we just haven't had to do that. so we need to do i guess what i would call take care of our electromagnetic hygiene to know how much energy we are putting out there that is being picked up if you will and how we use the frequency, can we hope frequency as we build new systems because it would be important because a lot of our potential lover series and a lot of new systems are coming in that measure exactly that. some electronic magnum and spectrum lenni to understand our dominance in the undersea domain and that is continuing and network approach. it's important to have submarines. they are the main part of dominance in the domain. but it's also a matter of having systems. it is the aircraft, its systems
